Exeter Beekeepers - a Branch of Devon Beekeepers Association.
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Roger Lacey "Reminisces on his life as a Beekeeper" followed by a 'Bring and Share' supper - Wednesday 4th December. This will be an informal occasion with Roger recalling some of his experiences with bees (the big question is - which ones will he leave out?) To be followed by a ‘bring and share’ evening. So turn the oven on and dig out your quiche recipe or your sausage rolls recipe; what about a trifle? – whichever takes your fancy, not forgetting the always acceptable mince pie. Our last event before Christmas so come along for a relaxed chat and festive drink - see you there! __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Will YOU stand for the EBKA Committee? The EBKA Committee consists of hobby beekeepers just like yourselves! We believe it vital that it should represent all sections of EBKA - whether experienced or complete beginner – so that the activities and events can reflect all beekeeping tastes and enthusiasms. We are particularly keen to introduce ‘new faces’ onto the committee and specifically want to encourage both complete beginners and those who may have one or two years experience (plus any more experienced Members of course), to join us on the committee. It is important to emphasise that in-depth beekeeping experience is NOT a pre-requisite to participation, indeed a fresh perspective on EBKA activities is regarded as very valuable. To this end it is proposed that those willing to consider the idea should join the committee without any specific responsibilities, other than to attend the monthly meetings, and simply represent their views for consideration. So, come along, and give it a try in a non-onerous role on the committee. Please contact either Viv Skarrat or Louise Rickard via the details on the 'Contacts' page if you would be prepared to consider the idea. Your committee needs YOU! ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Don't forget, Members are entitled to also attend Evening Meetings at other Devon Associations - see link to their programmes on the right of the 'Meetings' page.__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Do you have any interesting photos of bee related items?
